Christ, der du bist der helle Tag, BWV1120

composer
Neumeister manuscript

 
A striking setting, with echo effects, and textures ranging from block chords to more intricate counterpoint. The pedals are marked to enter half-way through, with the chorale in long notes creating some beautiful harmonies with the upper parts, and providing another element of contrast within the setting. Thus, the final chorale acts as a microcosm for the stylistic and textural variety that stands through the entire Neumeister collection.
